This is the type of stuff that drives people away from religion. I desperately wish that the majority if not all Muslims  can just drop the hadiths once and for all and could stop giving scholars/mullahs so much power and authoirty.

It's happening, naturally, it is just a matter of time..
People are getting less and less religious / sectarian..

Which worries the religious authority..
That's why the religious authority now regularly speak out the doctrine of "Ulama warsatul anbiya" (ulema as successor of prophet) on sermons, as remembrance of their 'God given Authority' to the masses... with addition of "God will be angry" if the "Ulema are being ignored"..

And actually.. it is happening on ALL dogmatic religion..

Lol... I don't even know what to say about this.
10:109 Follow what is being inspired to you and be patient until God judges.

57:3 He is the First and the Last, the Evident and the Innermost. And He is fully aware of all things.

modern tecnology like cell phones, computers, tabs, played an important role for reducing the views of secterian and tradition.. which was disturbing the societies from ages

Day of Judgement is around the corner?

Don't worry about them, worry about your own soul.

Instead you can go warn them, and share the wisdom and intellect that was granted to you by your Lord.
May He the Hearer grant us victory in the worldy life, and Hes abundance of Light on the Day of Judgement, and may He the King of kings grant us the eternal Paradise. Peace.

Not the first time Pok?mon has fallen afoul of fundamentalist clerics either. The franchise was effectively banned in Saudi Arabia due to a fatwa- in it they claimed that it was part of a Zionist conspiracy and that "Pok?mon" was Japanese for "I'm Jewish!" Even the Wahhabi nutters at IslamQA debunked that one!

I'm loving Pok?mon Go BTW. Very engaging stuff but a bit hard on the battery.
A tolerant, rational person of faith eternally striving to be on the straight path of God/Allah/Adonai.

To many people with the Muslim (label) identity, everything is a Jewish conspiracy targeting Arabs.
